Yeah...I Really Own That: Monica from Monica's Notebook/Monica's Closet Essentials

A few months ago, I was introduced to Monica's Closet Essentials, a cute little boutique, run by the adorably sweet, Monica of Monica's Notebook. I soon became OBSESSED with the blog and boutique (I even got to style a piece from her store HERE), and made a new sweet blogging friend. Monica is absolutely gorgeous, has amazing style, the sweetest personality, and a heart of gold. I swear guys, just reading her blog will make you want to be her bff....she really is that sweet! Oh and her recent engagement story...? Swoon-worthy! The cutest thing you've ever read! The fantastic thing about MCE, Monica's boutique, is that her personality and fantastic style shine through as she stocks the cutest items ever. She frequently updates her stock, and I find myself constantly drooling over the adorable pieces. What's even better? She styles the pieces so you know just how cute they are and it also gives you an idea of how to wear it. 

With that said, I am SO excited to introduce you to the adorable, kind, sweet and ridiculously stylish October Yeah...I Really Own That guest blogger...

If y'all don't know Ashley from TwentiesGirlStyle you're missing out.
She's the cutest little thing with the most amazing blog where she shares her incredible 
taste of fashion!

Now let's talk about how she's a genius...
Every month she invites bloggers to share a 
"Yeah...I really own that" piece of clothing.
What in the world is a "Yeah...I really own that" piece of clothing??
Well, here is how Ashley describes it....

"What is a “Yeah…I really own that” piece you might ask? It is a piece of clothing that you purchased at some point in time and are not really sure why. At the time of purchase it seemed like a great idea, but eventually you forget all of the reasons why/how it made its way into your closet and are left with only feelings of buyer's remorse or embarrassment. You would think these would be the first things to go when you have a major closet purge, but for some reason or another you just can’t let them go."

So today I'm guest posting over on Ashleys blog
& sharing my YIROT piece!

YIROT piece: Zoo shirt (Target)
Booties: Zara

Yes, as a matter of fact those ARE giraffes on my shirt
and maybe a few rhinos, zebras, and tigers.

I think it was last December when my mom and I
were shopping for a few of the girls in our family.

I'm not sure what came over me as I was walking through Target and laid eyes on this top.
I instantly fell in love.
Why? no clue.
I had already spent all of my Christmas money
but nothing was going to stop me from buying this shirt.
Needless to say I bought it and was beyond excited.

I think I've worn it once since it's been living in my closet,
I've cleaned out my closet about 3 times since I've had it but I just can't seem to get rid of it.
This is how I wore it the first time....

Even though this top doesn't get out much I'm sure
I will be hanging onto it for quite a while...

What's your "Yeah...I really own that" piece?!

Scarf Weather and a Giveaway!

 Dress: Forever 21
Vest: American Eagle
Boots: Unknown

As promised, here is another look featuring another new Caring Cowl design! This cowl is the perfect option for all day wear. I have been looking for a lighter, knit scarf that I could wear at work, that would keep my neck warm all day long. Anybody else have the problem of being FREEZING allllll day at work in the fall and winter?? There is nothing worse than shivering all day...luckily, this lightweight Jersey Caring Cowl has come to the rescue!
This Jersey Cowl is the perfect knit fabric, allowing you to comfortably wear it all day. It double wraps and is easy to clean, just throw it in the wash:)
I paired my Jersey Caring Cowl with a long sleeve body-con dress, my cargo vest and brown boots for an easy and chic fall outfit. I know I often declare my love for summer, but I'm pretty happy it's scarf weather! This cowl is not currently up on the Caring Cowl Etsy shop or the Caring Cowl product page, but visit the Caring Cowl blog and contact Sarah to order!

With so many new designs, Sarah of Caring Cowls has decided to host a giveaway on Twenties Girl Style! Entry is easy! Just follow the Rafflecopter below:) The winner will receive a Caring Cowl of their choice (color and style). Check out the available styles HERE and HERE

A Few Other Things I'm Loving

1. GroopDealz Boots: There are only a few hours left to snag these awesome studded lace-up boots off GroopDealz! I LOVE that they look just like the Studded Steve Madden Troopa's, but at $25.99, they have a way friendlier price tag and come in black, brown or grey. Check them out now!

2. Lorde: By now, I'm sure you have heard Lorde's "Royal's"'s all over the radio. I purchased the CD, "Pure Heroine" and cannot get enough. Her voice is gorgeous and her songs mellow and mysterious. My current favorite? 'Buzzcut Season'. Check it out below.

Caring Cowls

 Top: Forever 21
Pants: Forever 21
Shoes: Steve Madden "Croquetl" - HERE 
Love this version HERE
Cowl: Caring Cowl - Navy 'Chunky' Crocheted Cowl 
Bracelet: Brandy Melville 'Gold Cross on Chain Bracelet

 It's that time of year again! Caring Cowl season has arrived! If you follow my blog, you probably recall seeing Caring Cowls around these parts before (here and here), and know my obsession with these cozy products. Not only does one of my best friends make them (Hey, Sarah!), but she also donates all of the proceeds (minus material costs) to charity. Currently, Caring Cowls is funding for Action Against Hunger, but last year, $300 was donated to both the American Red Cross and the American Cancer Society.
Since last year, Sarah has introduced a few new designs for Caring Cowls, which I am excited to share with you on the blog! Now, she not only carries her standard single wrap cowl that I have blogged about before, but a double wrap cowl and now, one of my new favorites, the chunky crocheted cowl.
Guys, there is nothing quite like this cowl. Since I received it, I have worn it at least 2 times a week. This chunky cowl is cozy goodness that you better believe will be wrapped on my neck all fall and winter long. I already ordered a new one (dark grey), and plan on ordering a least two more in the next month or so. Yeah, I'm obsessed, but at least it's an obsession I can feel good about! Stay tuned for more exciting Caring Cowl news this week:) 

Please check out Sarah's blog, Caring Cowls, and her Etsy shop!

Sunday Wish List #1

GroopDealz Finds

1. /  2. /  3. /  4. 

I LOVE GroopDealz. I've purchased a few things from their website and have shared them on the blog, and I find myself checking their deals daily. I love that they offer on trend pieces for completely affordable prices, once again showing you that fashion IS attainable at all price points. Check out some of my favorite GroopDealz this Sunday.

1. GroopDealz Studded Wing Blouse: I love the color and LOVE the studded button detailing. How perfect would this top be with a leopard print scarf or leopard heels (see item 2). 
2. Ankle Strap Heels: These come in nude and black, but it is the leopard I am drooling over. On trend for this fall, these heels strongly resemble pricey versions from designer's but at $23.99 these are a steal. Get the quick! They are selling out fast!
3. Nicole Stretch Bracelet: I love this chunky bracelet! It comes in silver and gold, and I think it would be the perfect addition to any outfit.
4. Autumn Midi Pencil Skirt: I've been looking for a midi pencil skirt that I can wear to school and I think this just might be the one! I love the autumn orange, that is perfect for fall. Oh, and how cute would this be with the leopard heels....?

A Few Other Things I'm Loving...

1. The Little Mermaid - It's FINALLY out of the vault! Whoooohooo!

2. Freaks & Geeks - My boyfriend and I decided to watch this on Netflix and LOVED it. We finished the whole season in about 2 weeks. One of the best tv series I have seen with quite a few well known big names of today (Jason Segel, James Franco). It portrayed high school in such a realistic way, and had us laughing out loud throughout each episode. I definitely recommend it, but beware, there are only 18 episodes (it was cancelled before the first season was even over), and you will be sad when it's over!

It's All About the Boots

 Top: Forever 21
Vest: American Eagle - Love this studded option HERE or this trendy camo version HERE
Scarf: Target
Jeans: American Eagle - similar HERE
Boots: Naturalizer Boots

Other Great Riding Boots

 I have been such a bad blogger lately! I've said it before, but life is pretty hectic and I feel like I am living the same day over and over again.
5:30 am: Wake-up, lay in bed for 15 minutes, then get up and shower by 5:45. Ready and out the door by 7:05 and to school by 7:18 am-ish.
7:50 am: School starts. Spend the day teaching lessons to a group of wonderful, curious, mischievous 4th graders. I have quickly come to realize that there are not enough hours in the day to often get in all that needs to be taught, and the day flies by.
2:20 pm: Schools out. Send the kiddos on their way and plan and get things ready for the next day. I stay at school as late as 5, unless I have to be at my other job at 5. If that is the case, I head home about 3:30ish, SIT and eat a quick snack, finish any school work, and then head to work by 4:45. I work from 5-9:45pm, and then head home and eat a quick dinner.
10:00pm: In bed. Read for 2.5 minutes before my eyes become too heavy to even keep open. Sleep and repeat.

The one thing that I look forward to every single day, is reading my favorite blogs. Although I have sucked at commenting lately, the one thing that keeps me sane is keeping up to date with all of you guys! Thanks to those of you who continue to visit my blog and leave me sweet, sweet comments. They always make my day:)

When Naturalizer contacted me and asked me to style a pair of their famous Jersey boots, I was ecstatic! I have owned Naturalizer shoes before, and love that they are known for comfort and style, because really, who says to be stylish you can't be comfortable?!

I LIVE in boots, from September to March. Although I am a summer girl through and through, I love that fall and winter allows me to indulge in wearing boots every single day if I please. Boots look cute with anything and everything, and they keep my ankles warm. Bonus! Every year, I purchase a pair of brown boots that I wear to death. This year, I began my quest looking for something extremely comfortable, that could get me through a 7:20 am to 9:45 pm day, of working both jobs and spending roughly 13 hours on my feet.
My Naturalizer Jersey boots, quickly passed the test when I wore them 2 days in a row of working both jobs. I loved that when I got home, my feet weren't ridiculously sore and the next day, I wasn't hobbling around from been-on-my-feet-too-long-in-uncomfortable-shoe syndrome. Oh, and bonus? They look SO cute and chic with just about anything in my closet. I can't tell you how many compliments I have received or how luxe they look in person.

Since fall is all about layers, this is one of my favorite ways that I have worn them: holey skinnies, loose grey top, green utility vest and a oversized scarf. Let's be honest's really all about the boots:)

I am SO thrilled to be featured in Naturalizer's 'Style at Any Age' Blogger Challenge! Vote for the the style you like best, and be entered for a chance to win a pair of Naturalizer shoes of your own:) Voting ends October 30th!

Good Luck!
